January is the month for making new resolutions.
The end of the year makes us look back on the year gone by, to reflect on the year to come.
Time goes by quickly.
Wait, wasn’t it just 2016?
Well no… It’s now 2020.
This year is extra special as it’s the start of a new decade.
At out RDI Lite class, we were in a reflective mood.
The question put out to the group was- what do you want to achieve in 2020?
So we spent time thinking about where we wanted our children to be in the coming year.
Viji shared she wanted Vishal to become fully independent with taking a walk downstairs to shopping independently for monthly provisions.
That work has already started.
Freny wanted Touraz to become independent with all his Skills of Daily Living and to have a better bond with his family members.
Check out this video of Touraz and his cousin.
Arshya (new to the RDI Program) wanted to figure out what Arjun’s main mode of communication. And to be more meaningfully engaged with his family.
Jassi wanted Paawan be become independent with the use of money. And to be more communicative.
I wanted Mohit to be more expressive with his communication.
And to further his art career by having more exhibitions.
As you can see each of us has started to work on our aspirations for the year.
We wrote down our goals and we’re going after them.
What about you?
What do you want to achieve this year?
